the best time to get the attention of the american people. and yet it's the very moment that they need to do that. >> well, they, i think we are seeing them trying to push back on some of the things that are scaring americans, like the idea that older americans would have to have counseling on end of life care. that's a, basically, a twisted version of something that is a provision in the bill, that would allow medicare to pay doctors to have those kind of sessions, if a senior wanted to have that conversation. i think they feel the need to push back on some of those tactics. and the fact is, their best salesman is barack obama, even though we've seen some erosion in his approval ratings, he is the person who is best trusted by americans to make the case that this is a change that is worth having. so not maybe the total august vacation he had hoped for either. >> it's interesting. i also hear more talk in recent days from the administration about the economy. they are walking a line here, because day do want to take credit for some of the improvements, but they recognize for ordin

, let's be very clear. the congress has done more than just pass the american recovery and reinvestment act. they've also passed legislation on mortgage relief, $75 billion. and the reason why it's so slow in moving to the people who need it is because you have all these regulations that most people who qualify, one, don't know how, and secondly, they're under water. their properties are worth less now than it was before. so i think -- and also, there was important credit card reform legislation to stop the incremental increases -- >> but they have not -- >> there's a lot out there, we just have to make sure it works. we shouldn't be naysayers and say, we don't want it to work. >> i want things to work, but these are not working. >> we have to restore consumer confidence. because consumers account for 70% of our economy. we talk about small businesses, we talk about corporations. but people are saving their money, they're hoarding their money. you know why? because they're scared. they're scared about rising health care costs and scared -- >> let me ask you about that. because today there are indications that there could be, at least the treasury secretary is not ruling out the possibility of middle class tax incr

important to the american people. and no matter what's happening at these town hall meetings, whether people are shouting or screaming or bringing offensive signs, what's important is that the american people want to make progress on health care reform, bring down costs, get more people covered, make sure that people have a choice as it relates to health care. so i think the enduring image and the enduring ideas that people have about health care are more related to their own personal experiences and the experiences in their community about the rising costs that we have to cut down. this is one part of the discussion. we hope that people will try to have constructive discussions in their communities, and we're sure that when congress comes back in the fall that we're going to be able to make not just progress, but actually get a bill done, get the president's signature on it, and get health care reform this year. >> it seems, lately, you have refined your message on health care reform. in fact, you don't even call it health care reform these days. you call it health insurance reform,

it time to just say we're going to pass what the american people need and what they want without the republicans? [ applause ] >> i guess my question is, if every american who needed it, had access to good mental health care, what do you think the impact would be on our society? >> it's ok, mr. president. my concerns. [ laughter ] >> she is ok. >> he winked at me. >> right. sean: he winked at her. that seems consistent with the emotions we have been seeing all around the country, doesn't it? not if you listen to the host of insults the democratic leaders have been hurling at people. we have had hard working americans called nazis and brown shirts and unamerican by nancy pelosi. i guess that's what nancy pelosi would label my next guest. she also grilled senator specter earlier today. listen to. this i am a republican but i'm first and foremost a conservative. i don't believe this is just not about health care, it's not about tarp and left and right. this is about the systematic dismantle ling of this country. i'm only 35 years old. i have never been interested in politics. you have a

here right now. another day, and another democrat is held accountable by you, the american people. today, that democrat was senator arlen specter and he proved just as incapable of handling the frustrations of ordinary americans as all the democrats who came before him. the event reached the tipping point when a man rose to confront the senator. look at how specter reacted. >> you want to be -- you want to be led -- you want to be led out of here? you are welcome to go. now wait a minute, now wait a minute, now wait a minute. wait, wait a minute: wait a minute, wait a minute. wait a minute. wait a minute. you want to leave? leave. sean: he wasn't going to allow the senator to shout him down. here's what happened next. >> well, i got news for you, you and your cronies in the government do this kind of stuff all the time. well,.

the republicans here who stopped it. the elected republicans. it was the american people. i mean, i will say in defense of republicans, they wouldn't propose something this ridiculous, and as i mentioned in my column this week, even john mccain proposed during the campaign last year the only thing that needs to be done that would solve 90% of the problem is that is allow interstate commerce in health insurance. that's all you need to do to solve rationing. it is all pre-existing conditions. it is all people being able to carry insurance from when they lose their job or change states. that's all they need to be done and joe biden attacked him for that. the worst republicans are better than the best democrats. eric: let me show you a little bit of a democratic town hall. are remember this from sheila jackson lee? here she appears to be talking on her cell phone as a constituent was asking her a really important question during the town hall meeting. she said she was actually calling into a healthcare hotline to better help her constituents. i talked to, ann, and i talked to her about

"health care is complex and touches every american. people must be allowed to learn the facts. do you think that the people know what is in that bill? >> i do not believe so. but if the american people had not been speaking out loudly to slow this process down, the bill would have already passed the house. the speaker said that she wanted it passed by the end of july. the bill empowers washington to decide what kind of health care they will get. it is simply not what the american people want. bill: carried all over the networks, but none of that is happening. you charged against the white house that they manufactured the outrage. >> without a doubt. they believe that the best way for them to pass what they want is to get sympathy and rally their troops. they are better organized than the opposition.
